How do you make pub table legs?
If you are looking to build a bar table or a DIY pub table, one of the crucial components to consider is the table base. The base of a table provides stability and support, and the legs play a crucial role in this aspect. One popular option for pub table legs is using steel tubes or metal table legs. These materials offer durability and a sleek, modern aesthetic to your table. To make pub table legs using steel tubes, you will need to gather your materials and tools.
Firstly, measure and cut the steel tubes to your desired length using a tube cutter or metal saw. Next, you will need to create the necessary supports and joints to connect the legs. These can be achieved by bending the tubes using a pipe bender or by using various connectors like elbow joints or corner brackets for added stability. Once the legs are shaped and connected, the final step is to attach them securely to the table top using screws or bolts.
It is crucial to ensure that the legs are evenly spaced and level to prevent wobbling. Additionally, you may consider adding felt pads or rubber caps to the bottom of the table legs to protect your floor and reduce noise. By following these steps, you can create sturdy and stylish pub table legs using steel tubes or metal, enhancing the overall aesthetic and functionality of your DIY pub table.

- Add wheels
- Choose the material your prefer for the table top (wood, laminated surface, metal or more)
- Make it the color of your choice

tinktube makes it all possible! So, personalize away to create the bar table of your dreams.
Finishes and styling: Adding the finishing touch
To make your DIY bar table a real showstopper, it’s time for the finishing touches. Think about staining, painting, or varnishing the tabletop if you chose to build with wood. For the pipes and connectors, you can choose among a variety of colored pipes OR paint galvanized pipes yourself with metal paint.

What is the difference between a bar table and a high table?
A bar table, also known as a pub table, is usually taller than your regular dining table. I’m talking about those cool, hip tables you see at your local pub where the drinks flow like nobody’s business.
These tables are usually around 40 to 42 inches in height, allowing you to sit on a barstool comfortably and sip your drink without slouching like a sleepy sloth. Now, a high table is somewhat similar to a bar table, but not exactly the same, you know?
It’s like the cousin that’s almost as cool as the actual cool kid. High tables are usually a bit taller than your average dining table, but not as tall as a bar table. They’re typically around 34 to 36 inches in height, perfect for standing or using tall bar chairs.
So, when it comes to DIYing these bad boys, you can build your own outdoor bar table using old pallets or repurposed wood.
Get creative with it and give it your own personal touch. On the other hand, if you want to make a DIY high table, you can experiment with different materials like reclaimed wood or even metal.
The options are endless. Just remember, whether you choose a bar table or a high table, you’ll be adding a touch of charm and style to your space.
